Last week, Kara shared a tweet that inspired me. It read:

"One of life’s biggest lessons- you don’t always get what you want. You can do everything right, and still fall short. But usually, even in the pain, the journey was still worth taking. This is me, finishing 4th in the 2016 Olympic Trials Marathon. Only the top 3 moved on to the Olympics. Was it awful? Yes. But I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Sometimes a broken heart is better than being too afraid to try." In this episode, Kara joins me to talk about what inspired her tweet and then dig into all of the components of what it means including setting big goals, sharing them, overcoming fears and failure along the way, plus how to process success or failure when either comes. In this conversation, you will hear lots of personal examples from Kara and I to help inspire you to dream big without fear. In the end, I ask Kara one final question: "Is it in fact always worth the broken heart?" Listen all the way through to hear her response.
